Wedding Plan Update

Two weeks from tomorrow, my one and only child will be married. I am excited and a little sad all at the same time. Yes, I want him to make this step, and I am gaining a daughter, but it will be so different. He is ready. She is ready. So this is the next step for them. Today we went and bought their temple clothing and I almost cried when the lady helping us mention how this was so exciting. So many mixed emotions along with all the excitement.
We still have a few more things to do to be completely ready. Last Thursday, we spent most of the day stuffing, labeling, and sealing the wedding invitations. I noticed as we were stuffing them that they forgot to put where they were registered. Thank goodness for Staples! I ran and got the perforated business cards and was able to print and add them to the invitation. That night was her bridal shower, so we were up until 1:00 a.m. getting them ready to mail. At 1:15 a.m. Andy went to several post offices so they would get sent out and delivered.


They both need to go through their stuff and dejunk, pack up the stuff they want to keep but don't use all the time, and sell some unneeded furniture. Andy keeps promising me that he will get in and get his room ready for her to move in, but as yet, nothing has been done. We still need to get the centerpieces made, and pick up some corsages and boutonnieres we forgot to order the first time. I need to get the grooms dinner menu planned out and food bought and made.
I am working really hard to loose weight so I can look nice for pictures. I got my hair cut and colored but am not sure if I like the haircut. It's straighter than I normally wear it, and a little shorter in the back. Tommy hasn't said he hates it, so I guess that means it looks okay to him. Actually, he never really says anything about my hair unless I put a clip or bobby pin in it to get it off of my face.


Well, this post has gotten way too long and way too boring, but that's how my life is and that is not necessarily a bad thing. So, ready or not, this wedding is going to happen!!

Oh my gosh there is nothing boring about this post! It is such a beautiful reflection of how much you love your son. How nice is it that you get to double the amount of kids you have in one fell swoop! We loved the invitation- it is one of the classiest I have ever seen, ever.

I am sure that your haircut looks amazing- I wish you had posted a picture! There is nothing like getting your hair done to help you feel prepared for a big event :) I hope you have the perfect dress.

We are SO excited for you!!!

Love the post. And especially love the yellow flower's since yellow is my FAVORITE color. Your hair is wonderful, I love it, but I know when you don't love your own hair that makes a difference, but if you care it think it is very flattering and oh so mature!!! :) enjoy the last little moments, they will fly by I promise and then.......well you get a vacation and that's the best ever.....
